Kuhnhenn Summer Solstice Bottle Release Jun. 20

Kuhnhenn Brewing CoThe time has come again! Kuhnhenn Summer Solstice is back again for 2015, taking over the brewery on June 19 & 20 with plenty of food, music, limited drafts and of course – the expected bottle release. On the list for this year is Bourbon Barrel Aged 4D and Bourbon Barrel Barleywine (the 2 everyone keeps asking for).

Sales kick off at 9am on Saturday, June 20. Bottles will be sold as pre-packaged 4-packs with 2 of each beer. Limits and pricing are still TBA.

Commercial descriptions:

-Bourbon Barrel Aged 4D (13.5% ABV)
Our version of a classic English Olde Ale takes the style to new depths of flavor intensity. After several months conditioning, 4th Dementia is transferred into Bourbon barrels for several more months before being released. This ale has an intense, sweet caramel malt flavor and aroma that quickly develops into notes of toffee and toasted marshmallows. The barrel aging adds a slight whiskey character, complemented by subtle notes of vanilla sweetness. As this beer ages, alcohol flavors will fade away and round out, bringing out a mild sherry note with a long, lingering finish.
NOTE: This is 2014 Vintage that spent an additional 6 months in barrels to leach out all of the extra goodness!

-Bourbon Barrel Barleywine (14.5% ABV)
Our American Barleywine is aged for 9 months in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels, which contribute notes of vanilla, coconut, and a touch of oak to this intense, yet smooth beer. A heavy handed dose of aromatic American hops add a spicy-citrus note that helps to balance the sweetness of the rich malts, which showcase flavors of brown sugar alongside rich, dark fruits. This is a beer to age.
NOTE: This is 2014 Vintage that spent an additional 6 months in barrels to leach out all of the extra goodness!

Kuhnhenn Brewing Company is located at 5919 Chicago Rd. in Warren, MI.
